Norwalk, Connecticut The Easton Press 1986 Collector's Edition. First Printing Leather As New with No dust jacket as issued Illustrated by Frank Mayo

B&W illustrations by Frank Mayo. Introduction by James Gunn. Collector's Notes laid-in. Fredric Brown (1906-1972) was an American science fiction and mystery writer. His classic science fiction novel "What Mad Universe" (first published in 1949) is a parody of pulp Science Fiction story conventions. The novel functions both as a critique of its genre and a superior example of it. It may have provided a model for Philip K. Dick when he later created his own stories set in alternate personal realities. Ayn Rand singled out Brown for high praise in her book "The Romantic Manifesto." The famous pulp writer Mickey Spillane called Brown "my favorite writer of all time"..

Unconscious Crime: Mental Absence and Criminal Responsibility in Victorian London, Eigen, Joel Peter
17 Eigen, Joel Peter Unconscious Crime: Mental Absence and Criminal Responsibility in Victorian London
Baltimore, Maryland, U.S.A. Johns Hopkins University Press 2003 0801874289 / 9780801874284 Stated First Edition. 1 Hard Cover As New in As New dust jacket 
First Printing. Publisher's full black textured cloth, gilt (blue) lettering on spine, textured endpapers. 8vo. xii, 223 pp. Includes detailed Notes and Index. Publisher's release blurb laid in. Among the defendants appearing in Unconscious Crime are a sleepwalking, homicidal nursemaid; a "morally vacant" juvenile poisoner; a man driven to arson by a "lesion of the will"; and a Jekyll-and-Hyde assailant who underwent his transformation into beast-man while on the stand. These people are not characters from a mystery novelist's vivid imagination, but rather defendants who were tried at the Old Bailey, London's central criminal court, in the mid-nineteenth century. In Unconscious Crime, Joel Peter Eigen explores these and other cases in which defendants did not conform to any of the Victorian legal system's existing definitions of insanity, yet displayed convincing evidence of mental aberration. Instead, they were - or claimed to be - "missing," "absent," or "unconscious": lucid, though unaware of their actions. Based on extensive research in the Old Bailey Sessions Papers (verbatim courtroom narratives taken down in shorthand during the trial and sold on the street the following day), Eigen's book reveals a growing estrangement between law and medicine over the legal concept of the Person as a rational and purposeful actor with a clear understanding of consequences. The McNaughtan Rules of 1843 had formalized the Victorian insanity plea, guiding the courts in cases of alleged delusion and derangement. But as Eigen makes clear in the cases he discovered, even though defense attorneys attempted to broaden the definition of insanity to include mental absence, the courts and physicians who testified as experts were wary of these novel challenges to the idea of human agency and responsibility. Combining the colorful intrigue of courtroom drama and the keen insights of social history, Unconscious Crime depicts Victorian England's legal and medical cultures confronting a new understanding of human behavior, and provocatively suggests these trials represent the earliest incarnation of double consciousness and multiple personality disorder.. This is a new, unopened, unmarked copy. Both the volume and the dust jacket are in perfect, pristine condition. AS NEW/AS NEW. . 8vo - over 7" - 9" tall
